The Shrieking Pit


Published June 25, 2012


LibriVox recording of The Shrieking Pit, by Arthur Rees. Read by Kevin Green.

The Shrieking Pit is one of Arthur Rees's earlier works, and is a good old fashioned murder mystery story. Grant Colwyn, a private detective, is holidaying in East Anglia when he notices a young man at a nearby table behaving peculiarly. The young man later leaves the hotel without paying his bill, and turns up in a nearby hamlet in the Norfolk marshes where he takes lodgings at the village inn. The next day, another guest at the inn is found dead, and the young man is missing. Can Colwyn sort out the mystery and prove the young man's innocence one way or the the other? (Summary by Kevin Green)

Subject: Excellent mystery story
The summary covers the plot. This story has a number of mysteries in it, and weaves them together nicely. Who is the mysterious young man? Why would he refuse to defend himself? Can our hero save him from the gallows?

Kevin does a wonderful job with the recordings. Thank you!
